wheel loader front and wing plowOVERVIEW:

Stucchi’s offers hydraulic solutions which have been proven to be ideal for wheel loaders running wing plows, front plows, 4 in 1 buckets, brooms and various other attachments, in commercial and municipality snow removal applications.

Stucchi’s multi-coupling plates and VEP Series of threaded, flat-face couplers improve equipment efficiency and uptime with easy connect under residual pressure and no leak performance.

CHALLENGE:

Pressure and Fluid Leaks

Residual pressure is a common issue experienced by operators connecting wheel loader attachments such as wing plows, front plows, 4 in 1 buckets, brooms, grapples and many others. Time delays jeopardize road safety and hinder machine efficiency. Hydraulic fluid leaks are common with traditional poppet-style couplers and often leak fluid onto garage floors and into the environment.
Operators may be unaware that a better option exists with dripless, simple connect and disconnect, even in the presence of residual or trapped pressure.

THE STUCCHI SOLUTION:

The Stucchi Multi‐Plate Series allows the simultaneous coupling and uncoupling of multiple hydraulic lines with a single, simple movement requiring very little force.

The Stucchi VEP Series is a popular solution for hydraulic circuit applications subject to high‐pressure impulses and circuits which experience high residual or trapped pressure in a line.

RESULTS:

Stucchi’s coupling technology offers a dripless connection while providing the ability to connect and disconnect in the presence of residual or trapped pressure.

BENEFITS:

Of Multi-Coupling Plates:

    • Simple to use with Single‐Motion Connection
    • Two to Ten Connections
    • Connect/Disconnect with Residual Pressure
    • Flat Face Valve Allows for Leak‐Free Connection
    • Circuit Contamination Reduced

 

Of VEP Threaded Couplers:

    • Thread to Connect Design for Ease of Making Connection
    • Connect/Disconnect with Residual Pressure
    • Flat Face Valve Allows for Leak‐Free Connection
    • Circuit Contamination Reduced
